Norman Wisdom, a giant in the field of British comedy, is dead at age 95. The iconic actor and comedian was one of the few remaining celebrities who made their names in the fabled British music halls of many years ago. His gentle brand of comedy generally found him playing a down-on-his-luck loser, similar to Chaplin's Little Tramp. So great was Wisdom's impact that Chaplin himself proclaimed him one of his favorite comedians, and his fans included Prince Charles, who grew up on his films. Wisdom had been living alone and independently until recently, when a series of strokes convinced him to move to a nursing home. Curiously, he was largely unknown in America, where his films were generally relegated to bottom-of-the-bill double features, if they were released there at all. However, in England, his popularity so transcended age brackets that his web site crashed when news of his death was announced. Click here for more.
